    Good value for the price. The standard kit lens that comes with Sony a6000 is not very versatile. I purchased this lens for a alround replacement and also purchased a Ziess 55mmm f/1.8 for it's superior optics. Best Buy also matched a competitors price on both lenses , which I always compare before I buy.

    Read numerous reviews that said this was the lens to complete one's needs for the Sony NEX. I got quality pictures with the lens with decent detail at 150' to 200'. The black "rubber" grip is useful.

    It's great for what it is. As the only zoom available, it takes clear pictures and is easy to use. Using either manual or auto focus, it takes nice crisp pictures. Does great at the hockey rink with action shots and poor lighting. I wish they would come out with a bigger zoom lens that would work with further distances.

    I was definitely sold on the Distance that this lense captures and the Ability to capture a photo focusing on the main person and blurring the background. Amazing lens would recommend it to any photographer who does portrait photography not to much Nature photography nor sports photography.

    Good All Around Zoom

    Solid construction, good mid- to long general purpose zoom for the Sony E-Mount cameras. Wish the maximum aperature was faster, but cranking up the camera ISO offsets this for most situations. Recommend buying it bundled with the Sony camera to get a substantial discount.

    I bought this lens for my son to use when he is airplane spotting. He has pulled in some great photos from the observation lounges of various airports. Although we haven't done any enlargements, the photos seem sharp. There doesn't seem to be a lot of noise and it performed well under night time conditions.

    This lense is really great for a beginner like myself. I don't know too much about changing settings to get the perfect picture just yet, but this lense works great for what I needed. Hiking and taking pictures from a distance to not disturb wildlife.

    We used this lens on a recent trip to St. Louis where we attended a Cardinals baseball game and the Blackhawks vs. St. Louis Blues hockey game. We got some great shots even though at both places we were sitting quite a distance away. Very happy with the quality of the lens and the pictures it takes.

    I bought this lens to shoot scenery and motor sports outside. This lens has produced great shots of both, thus covering many aspects of shooting with a long lens. My camera is a Dony NEX-7 and multiplies the lens by 1.5. I am very happy with this open box purchase from Best Buy.

    Great Camera Lens

    This is a great camera lens for zooming in closer to subject. I use this lens to record church service and sit near the back of church and it zooms in close and objects/subject is clear and makes it a lot easier than using the standard lens. I compile this video onto a DVD for TV broadcast twice a month.

    This lens takes sharp photos, beautiful photos. Best buy also has a price matching program so I saved a little bit of money on it. The only negative thing I have to say about this lens is the autofocus is kind of slow and the minimum focusing distance is not great, but for the price it's a bargain!

    This is an average lens - it offers good quality and a good price. If you wish to get better quality you have to expect to pay a lot more. It comes with a lens hood to avoid glare which is awesome. Has an average zoom to f-stop value but is good for its price (when its on sale).

    The Sony 55mm-210mm is a great lens. It has Optical Stabilization built into the lens and it works really well with long range shots. Although the quality diminishes when using it hand held in low light situations. Tri-pod is reccommened. Worth the price, and defitely worth having one in your gear bag.

    The product was purchased as an open box item. I found all the materials and item packed correctly. The lens is a great workhorse and works well with my Sony A6000. I took the camera to the Air & Space Museum and got some exceptional close-up shots that were in good focus.

    I have a habit of always purchasing lens in the event that I need to take pictures of items that are far away. Funny, when I had my old DSLR I hardly ever used the bigger lens. However, with my new Sony camera I have used this lens a lot. Works great, no rocket science here.

    Truly Great Lens!

    Great introductory lens for the money! It's light enough to not be out of place on a camera as small and equally lightweight as an A6000, but not enough to feel precarious. Takes spectacular photos at maximum zoom!

    Love this as it is paired up with Sony NEX5. A friend, professional photographer, recently used it and loved it! She noted how lightweight it was. Was impressed with the max zoom on landscape. Love replayed the photos on my big screen and hearing the ooos and ahhs as we zoom in on the pictures.

    I'm super pleased with my 55-210mm Sony lens! It is great for product reviews, landscapes, clear portraits, etc. The size is not too bulky for what it can do and easily fits into my camera bag.

    I bought this lens as part of a bundle deal with my Sony a6000 camera. I've been amazed at the pictures that I've captured with this lens. It has a great zoom and stabilizing. I travel for work almost every week and I always bring my camera and this lens with me. It has yet to disappoint.
